NFL Scout A Fan Of 2016 Quarterback Commit Brandon Peters

New, 2 comments

He likes what he sees from the four-star prospect with limited coaching to this point.

Michigan fans should feel really good about one of their future quarterbacks.

Barton Simmons of 247 Sports spoke to an anonymous, senior-level NFL scout (FREE) about the top five quarterbacks in the class of 2016, which included four-star Wolverine commit Brandon Peters (Avon, Indiana).

Strengths:

Peters showed the scout on film that he can buy time and create. Compared to the other quarterbacks he watched, Peters was more purposeful and deliberate in the pocket. You can tell he has a good feel for the game according to the scout and he also felt as if Peters had the best combination of athleticism and mechanics. On film, the scout felt that Peters looked polished and looked like he's been coached up.

note: In reality, Peters has had limited QB coaching relative to some of the other quarterbacks that the scout watched and that could be a great sign for the development trajectory for Peters.

Concerns:

There weren't a lot of negatives that the scout saw. Athletically, he considered Peters above average but only called him a "6 on a scale from 1 to 10 as an athlete".
